Ultra Fishing Charters, TX Offshore Fishing

Ultra Charters offers exceptional offshore Texas State Waters fishing charters aboard a beautiful and comfortable 38’ Chris Craft sport fishing yacht. The charter is operated by Captain Al Manica who is a USCG licensed captain, a merchant marine officer, and a PADI Dive Master with 20 years of professional experience.

Captain Al will take you out on his top-of-the-line sportfisher yacht, which is powered by twin 700 HP marine GM engines. The boat is super reliable and secure, and contains all the necessary USCG approved safety equipment including an EPIRB. Its navigational equipment includes a GPS, a radio, and a fishfinder that will allow you to locate the best fishing spots.

Ultra Charters trips are all inclusive of bait, rods, reels, tackle, a deckhand, a captain and all without a fuel surcharge. They will take you fishing out of the Bridge Harbor Yacht Club in Freeport, Texas and into state waters abundant with desirable fish species.

On your trip, you could target Red Snapper, Amberjack, big Cobia/Ling, Grouper, Wahoo, King Mackerel, and more. Captain Al and deckhand will selflessly share their knowledge and skills with you, so you will not only be able to catch fish successfully but learn from the pros.

The deckhand will clean, fillet, and bag your catch at no extra charge, however, tipping them is highly encouraged and appreciated. Ultra Charters’ goal is for you to have fun and to provide you great memories that will last a lifetime!
